Happy Weekend: 10 Links I Love


Happy Friday! Any fun plans for the weekend? I’m going to a little brunch gathering tomorrow morning to celebrate my friend who is about to have her second baby, and then my parents are coming to visit us overnight on Saturday to get in lots and lots of snuggles with chunky Jack :) I feel like this weekend will be just the right mix of social time and down time, which I love.

Oh, and don’t forget—we lose an hour this weekend with the time change! Now, for some favorite links this week:

1. Real talk: feeling insecure about your looks. (YouTube)

2. How being organized can change your career. (Who What Wear)

3. What kind of texter are you? (A CUP OF JO)

4. 3 ways to amp up your ponytail. (Verily Magazine)

5. A video documenting beauty standards over the last 3,000 years. (BuzzFeed)

6. A beauty routine to wake up winter skin. (Darling Magazine)

7. My favorite Anthro dress, now on sale. (Anthropologie)

8. Female company president: “I’m sorry to all the mothers I worked with.” (Fortune)

9. A fun YouTube channel I just discovered. (YouTube)

10. The 30 most influential people on the internet. (TIME)

    I read that Fortune article this morning and was completely nodding my head in agreement – I’ve so been there, once upon a time beforeI became a mom. Even now as a mom, it’s so easy to fall into the ‘judging’ trap, it just looks different than it did in the corporate/business world.

    And I love, love that Anthro dress! I don’t think I could pull it off but it’s awesome and the color is perfect. Enjoy your weekend! :)

    I’ve watched that video on ideal bodies before. I find it so fascinating. Crazy how much it’s changed throughout the years. I feel like men have always liked the same thing though. Maybe it’s just the men I know but I feel like curves are always in with them. I feel like women always want what they don’t have. :P
